US Senate candidate Kelli Ward, who is challenging Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake in the state's 2018 Republican primary, said Thursday that she hopes Sen. John McCain will step aside as quickly as possible following the news this week of his brain cancer diagnosis.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren praised her colleague John McCain Thursday, calling him "tough as a boot" the day after it was announced that the Arizona Republican had been diagnosed with a primary glioblastoma, a type of brain tumor.
News of Arizona Sen. John McCain's brain cancer reverberated across Capitol Hill on Wednesday night, breaking just as a group of Senate Republicans were huddled together in the Dirksen Senate Office Building trying to find a way forward on their health care bill.
Now that Republicans will delay a vote on their health care bill until Arizona Sen. John McCain is healthy enough to return to Washington, Senate Democrats are asking Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his top committee chairmen to hold hearings on the measure.
